A FREE ENTRY WRITING COMPETITION OPEN TO ALL!

Details of the March 2017 Creative Writing Competition.

 

MARCH IS TO BE AN OPEN MONTH THAT WILL ALLOW CONTRIBUTORS TO WRITE ABOUT ANY THING OR PERSON (OR COLLECTION THEREOF) THAT TAKES THEIR FANCY. BUT PLEASE LET IT NOT BE TRUMP OR BREXIT.:)

The length of the story in March will be “between 500 and 2000 words”, and competitors are reminded that multiple entries can be accepted, particularly of the shorter variety.
The closing date for entries will be Midnight on Friday the 31st of March 2017.
The period for receiving votes will be announced when the competition closes, and votes will not be accepted until after the competition closes.
There will be no “prize” for winning this March competition other than to win the admiration of the entire creative writing group. However, if and when Volume 5 of the tcwg Annual collection of Short Stories appears (now in compilation), this month’s winner could well receive a free complimentary copy.

Voting.

After the competition closes there will be a vote to decide the first three places.
Just after the closing date, a vote collection point with details of how to vote will be set up here in this competition section.

How to enter.
Post your story on your personal WordPress blogs and post a link to your story in the form of a comment below (“Leave a reply” panel.)

For those unfamiliar with the workings of the monthly competition a list of detailed rules for the competition can be found here

Pleasant writing everyone. With the freedom to write on any subject that inspires the imagination, please let’s make it a bumper month for entries.

  1. Having swept up the left over words from my other story and cobbled them into a second entry on the same topic as the other tale, you will find it on the link below. Should anyone think that that is a bit of a cheat, kindly look on it as being my Special Offer of the month … my ROGOF offer, Rite One Get One Free.
    Heeding Christopher’s words, should anyone feel that that wording might lead to someone suffering a little emotional or psychological damage, then they can read ROGOF as meaning Read One Get One Free. 🙂

      1. I feel really rusty after a long absence but it’s a start. I have no excuse now because most of my belongings have emerged from their boxes although some are still mysteriously missing and my desk is in the hall. However (I should have typed that in upper case) work is going to start soon in the basement of our house which will create a study/library large enough to host writers’ groups :-). And although it’s in the basement it does have a window (looking out at the oil tank and the coal bunker). Onwards and upwards! XX
